Subject [Bug 55841] Misleading news items on bugfix releases ("This version of httpd is a major release of the [...]")

--- Comment #7 from Luca Toscano <toscano.luca@gmail.com> ---
Hi Filipus,

following up on your last message:

>  Calling this "misleading" is to put it mildly.

Would you mind to put an example of how the email message should look like to
not be "misleading"? Do you have a proposal to make a change in the email's
format? If so please add it to this bug so we'll be able to discuss it :)

> The fact that no comment "supports the issue", as you describe it, does not make a ticket
invalid. A ticket is only invalid if its claim is incorrect.

I'd like to clarify this point. I am trying to clear old bugs in the huge
(~1500) buglist of httpd and for this one I thought that the absence of
traction/support, together with the fact that I didn't really shared your point
of view, was an indicator that the email content wasn't misleading. This was my
bad since I should have probably added a comment with my thoughts before
closing the bug and marking it as invalid, lesson learned for the future and my
apologies :)

> I disagree about it being the "responsibility of who downloads/update the new version
of httpd to check the changelog for the new minor release (not relying only on the email message)."
Users should be able to trust email sent by the foundation.

I agree with you partially. The emails from the foundation should be trusted
but it is indeed a best practice (at least in my opinion) for a
sysadmin/maintainer to check the Changelog to have a full and precise/complete
view of what will end up in production. 

Thanks!

Luca
